Ended up going with the curry option. Made a nice paste out of shallots, garlic, EVOO, ginger, fresh ground cumin, turmeric, cardamon, coriander, salt, pepper, flour, a dried chili pepper. Cooked the paste for a minute, added cubed chicken until cooked on outside. Removed, and cooked some cubed zucchini and sliced red peppers a few minutes. Added the leftover pumpkin soup, deglazed, readded chicken and simmered for half an hour. Added a dollop of butter and served with Basmati rice. Was very good. Recommended.
Also watching some pumpkin bread dough on its first rise in the kitchen ;)
Thanks for all the suggestions...I hate to waste good food.
